Commentaires : Revered musical Falsettos returns to Broadway in 2016 for the first time in 23 years. Helming this revival is the original co-writer and director James Lapine, who has three Tonys to his name and helmed the 2012 revival of Annie. Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!) stars as Marvin, with Andrew Rannells (Book of Mormon) as Whizzer and Stephanie J. Block (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) as Trina!

First performed on The Great White Way in 1992, Falsettos made for a thoroughly subversive Broadway show, exploring the all-too-recent AIDS crisis in the form of a wholesome song and dance musical. It was nominated for seven Tonys, taking home two awards for Best Book of a Musical and Best Score, and remains a landmark of gay theater to this day.
Presse : "There’s hardly a moment in the exhilarating, devastating revival of the musical “Falsettos” that doesn’t approach, or even achieve, perfection. This singular show, about an unorthodox family grappling with the complexities of, well, just being a family — unorthodox or otherwise — has been restored to life, some 25 years after it was first produced, with such vitality that it feels as fresh and startling as it did back in 1992." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Plan on being deeply touched and richly satisfied at this show." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Few musicals have the range, idiosyncrasy and emotional punch of this profoundly unconventional and personal work." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Finn brilliantly uses musical comedy to explore what constitutes a family, while humanizing the extensive tragedy of the AIDS epidemic." Jennifer Farrar for Associated Press

"A sweetheart of a show, tuned to perfection." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"This surprisingly fresh revival has been directed by original director Lapine, who plainly understands the bittersweet humor and provisional joy of that period. March on." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
